Stratacache ‘OmniCast’ Ready to Update Boxes

A new software solution from Stratacache will help cable operators, direct-broadcast satellite providers and wired and wireless Internet-protocol-TV services to more efficiently update their set-top boxes.

The vendor Tuesday debuted “OmniCast for STB,” which enables automatic delivery of set-top software updates, digital-rights-management upgrades, channel guides, advertising, middleware and operating-system updates.

Stratacache said OmniCast “dramatically reduces the time and network bandwidth required to push new or updated software to any number of STBs and guarantees that all of a provider's STBs are up-to-date with the same versions of software.”
